:icondbthx4::icondbthx5::icondbthx6: on Echo Park Lotus Blossom. This is one of the last lotus blossoms. No one knows for sure why they stopped growing. There used to be thousands. This is only 15 minutes from my house [link]

Nice shot. It's very crisp, captures variety (in terms of what phases of blooming the lotuses are at), has good lotus pad arrangements (the leaves lead the viewer throughout the bottom of the picture), and has a balanced sense of vertical and horizontal objects.

I also wasn't aware that these kinds of lotuses grew in Echo Park. This is good to know (hope they still do). Thanks.

You're welcome for the fave.

That's too bad, about the lotus blossoms, though.

I appreciate that you took the time to take a stroll through my gallery today. I really appreciate that and your super sweet comment.

:iconrudeboyskunkplz::iconrudeboyskunkplz2::iconrudeboyskunkplz3: on A Light Shines Thru the Rain When I saw this sight, I dashed into my house to get the camera. The photo window of opportunity only lasted a minute. [link]

:icondsfav1plz::icondsfav2plz::icondsfav3plz: on Matsumoto's Castle. This castle was never conquered. [link]

:iconthankuplz: Cherry Blossoms Patio and Pond. This is, indeed, the kind of place one can sit down, enjoy a cup of hot tea, and absorb the Japanese garden scenery.. [link]

Very pretty! That place looks very relaxing... and warm.

It's quite a coincidence. I don't go to Echo Park often, but I just came from there now. A friend of mine, who is very direct, called and yelled at me for neglecting her. She told me I "had to" take her to Echo Park so we could picnic during her lunch hour. So, I did.

I LOVE Lotus blossoms and I like how you offset the flowers, showing the park in the background. Very well balanced and soooo pretty! :-) :hug:

I am glad you see the thought I put into this photograph. I tried many different angles and perspectives and this is the one I believe works the best.
I appreciate the fave from you very much.

Wow, that's a beautiful shot!
Even though the purple on the flower is so vibrant the focus and height on the white flower helps my eyes travel through the entire picture.
Well done :3

Wow. If I am able to get the master of darkness to feel serene, I have greatly succeeded.
I feel honored!
